Here We Fuckin Go Again...Like A Hobo I Was Born to Walk Alone. It's Baseball Season Bitches


Oh my god. Oh my god. An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time. But here I go again, here I go again. And I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time. Here I go again on my own. Goin' down the only road I've ever known. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone. Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams.

1:45 pm
Toronto Blue Jays (Halladay) @ NY Yankees (Wang) - in a rain delay.

KC Royals (Meche) @ Detroit Tigers (Verlander) - 1-0 Tigers in the 2nd. RBI single up the middle from Edgar Renteria on a Gil Meche hanging curveball, plating Carlos Guillen.

1:50 pm
KC Royals (Meche) @ Detroit Tigers (Verlander) - 1-0 in the bottom of the 3rd. Royals CF David DeJesus is already out of the game replaced by one car-jumping Joey Gathright.

2:00 pm
KC Royals (Meche) @ Detroit Tigers (Verlander) - 2-out single through the right side from Carlos Guillen. The not-yet suspended Jose Gullien unleashed a cannon and threw Mags out at home to end the inning. Still 1-0 Tigers through three innings. Gil Meche's pitch count is already at 53 and Verlander has yet to give up a hit.

2:10 pm
KC Royals (Meche) @ Detroit Tigers (Verlander) - Billy Butler breaks up Verlander's no-hitter with a base hit by a diving Miguel Cabrera. But he got Mark Teahen to ground out to first to end the inning. Apparently, David DeJesus re-injured the ankle he originally twisted during spring training. Tigers 1-0.

KC Royals (Tomko) @ Detroit Tigers (Lopez) - Bobby Seay replaced Grilli and got Gathright to line out to short, then was replaced by Aquilino Lopez. Grundlesack singled home Gload before Lopez got Gordon to fly out. Brett Tomko, wait...Brett Tomko is now in to pitch for KC against Sheff, Mags, and Cabrera. Yikes! Royals 4 - Tigers 3.

Washington Nationals (Chico) @ Philadelphia Phillies (Wife-Beating Myers) - Small ball for the Phills. MVP Rollins with a lead-off double. Shane Victorino sac bunt. Chase Utley sac fly. Ryan Howard ground out. Phillies 1-0 after one.

Milwaukee Brewers (Sheets) @ Chicago Cubs (Zambrano) - Back in a rain delay after Zambrano struck out to lead off the top of the 3rd. Each team with 1 hit. No score.

4:45pm
KC Royals (Soria) @ Detroit Tigers (Bautista) - With Denny Bautista on the mound for his second inning of work, Mark Teahen led off the top of the 11th with a walk. Gload then "sac"ked him over. John Buck singled up the middle and new "Center Fielder" Brandon Inge gunned Teahen out at home with Buck advancing to second on the throw. However, Tony Pena followed that with a huge two-out single to plate Buck and give the Royals the lead. Royals closer Joakim Soria came on to pitch the bottom half of the 11th and after a lead-off double by Clete Thomas and a sac bunt by Brandon Inge, Soria struck out Renteria. With two down Polanco ripped one down to third where Alex Gordon made a beautiful game-saving diving stop to rob Polanco of the tying hit. Final: Royals 5 - Tigers 4. W: Nunez (1-0) L: Bautista (0-1) S: Soria (1). HR - KAN: A. Gordon (1) DET: C. Guillen (1), M. Cabrera (1)

And I'm spent.

cant like my team losing to the royals for the season opener. now we cant go undefeated, although only 996 more runs to score until my projected 1000 for the tigers. That's almost 7 runs a game for the rest of the season, totally doable
